Fitch Ratings said it has assigned a AA-plus rating to Fort Worth, Texas' $139.6 million general purpose refunding and improvement bonds, series 2012; and $85.8 million combination tax and revenue certificates of obligation, series 2012.

The GO bonds are scheduled for a negotiated sale the week of Aug. 6. Proceeds will finance street and drainage improvements and refund a portion of the city's outstanding tax-supported debt. The COs will be sold competitively on Aug. 14, and proceeds will finance the construction of a new police/fire training facility and purchase public safety equipment.
